Last Sunday was my wife’s birthday and we had a wonderful day. The weather was perfect, so in the morning the grandchildren played in the paddling pool on the lawn, and then we went out for lunch at the Arden House Hotel. After lunch our sons entertained the children by rolling down a grassy bank outside the hotel. It’s lovely to watch the kids learning how to roll down a hill!
Then we went to the Summer Exhibition at the Town Hall in Kirkcudbright. The show covers the work of some of the Glasgow Girls many of whom visited or worked in and around Kirkcudbright, so there was much of local interest. It’s a great exhibition and we all enjoyed looking at the paintings, textiles and sculpture.
Madison and Gerard were also visiting the show and I took the opportunity to photograph Madison with Gerard’s permission, and what an intense persona he has with those large dark eyes. His relaxed confidence in front of the camera made the task of taking a couple of shots much easier than normal. A print will shortly be on its way to them both. Thanks guys.
